What is Arena Quality?
Arena Quality is a cloud-based quality management software solution designed to bring interdisciplinary visibility, supplier collaboration, and long-term tracking of quality resolutions to the enterprise’s core. Specifically, it enables companies to create and better meet ISO standards, FDA and a spectrum of other product quality business processes, including; 21 CFR Part 11, 21 CFR Part 820, NCMR, CAPA, and 8D. And it’s all embedded into Arena PLM for holistic visibility.
Arena’s quality management software is built for companies ranging from large high tech multinational enterprises that need to unify global business units to small medical device startups in need of an efficient, compliant quality system. Regardless of a company’s size or industry, Arena Quality enables continual process improvements, higher quality products, and cost reductions across the entire value chain.
See the Total Quality Picture through the Lens of the Product Record
With Arena Quality, connections to items, changes, requests, files, projects and other quality processes, including outside links, result in a more comprehensive solution than with other quality modules. Alternatives connect only to parts and assemblies and have to be cross-checked against a PLM solution that does not interface with an independent Quality module.
Arena Quality offers highly regulated companies, such as medical device manufacturers, and high technology OEMs a watertight solution. By integrating quality processes directly with the product record, Arena ensures quality records are captured and maintained to demonstrate adherence to regulatory requirements. Suppliers can be held accountable as all quality issues are aggregated in a centralized location. With Arena Quality, companies capture a more complete quality picture, allowing auditors to quickly and easily verify compliance in context All the people, see all the stuff, all the time.
While other solution’s economics restrict collaboration and ownership to a handful of licenses, Arena Quality enables every individual in the company as well as their supply chain partners, to engage with an open privilege model. This allows all users to initiate and drive the process. The entire team is empowered to promote continuous improvement in the product.
Arena Quality Supports Design Thinking
This module is completely integrated with Arena PLM records and processes to ensure engineers, manufacturing, quality and supply chain teams have in-context visibility to all quality issues as they design, review, improve, and build your products. In addition, suppliers can be included as assignees and owners, as well as fully involved in any quality process shared with them, such as interactive CARs and SCARs.
A cloud-based PLM solution connects quality and planning with the product development process to act as one. With this holistic, end-to-end view of quality management, Arena Quality enables companies to deliver high-quality products more efficiently. This seamless integration, coupled with a suite of robust, easy to use features, keeps costs low and productivity high, while accelerating innovation.
